Increasing research impact: early reflections from the ESRC EvidenceNetwork
Examines some of the contributions made by the ESRC's Evidence Network to the development of thinking on evidence based policy and practice (EBPP). The origins and membership of the network are outlined, and details of other networks in the EBPP world are listed. The Evidence Network's unique characteristic is its coverage of the complete spectrum of EBPP interests from the creation of evidence to its utilisation and impact. The paper focuses on utilisation issues, describing a recent review of research by the Research Unit for Research Utilisation and complementary activities by other Evidence Network members to improve the take-up of research by users and promote their involvement in systematic reviews. It reflects on the improved understanding of how research may influence practitioners and policy makers that is provided by the Evidence Network's research and user engagement activities.
